I love personalized monograms so much, I have to hold myself back from overdoing it.  Not too long ago I discovered I was wearing both the bold monogrammed cuff featured here and a tote with my (bold) monogram, too.  It wasn’t on purpose.  That morning I just wasn’t paying attention to what items I was choosing.

There is nothing wrong with wearing lots of bold monograms at once.  It’s just not what I prefer.  Whether in my home or on my person, I like my initialed items to create a unique and subtle signature look.  To do that, I keep it to just one per outfit (generally, but there are exceptions, of course!). When decorating a room, I like to do the same.

Hope you like the roundup I present here.  Some version of each is still available at this posting (one is even on sale).

Happy monogramming! ~Janis Lyn Johnson
